Exchanging MIDI files between different Cubase versions

Hi there,

I am working with Cubase 6.5, and for a project I need to exchange MIDI files with a friend who is working with Cubase Elements 9.5.

He sent me several files that contain markers, but when I import them, the marker track is empty.

(Of course, marker import/export is activated in our settings).

This has been quite annoying.
Has anyone encountered this issue before? Are markers stored differently in MIDI files depending on the software version?

Thank you,

Hi and welcome,

Have you tried to exchange directly CPR files?
